Now here’s a widget I’ve been waiting for. Dustin Bachrach’s ShowYourself Widget – which let’s you broadcast and keep track of all your Web 2.0 identities; your MySpace/Facebook profiles, Flickr account, name, etc.

There are a couple of notable exceptions on the list – the biggest name missing is LinkedIn, a site that’s growing in popularity amongst real estate professionals. The other big one is ActiveRain, though that’s not really a surprise given it has no traction outside of the real estate industry.

ShowYourself is styled to match the MyBlogLog widget, so if you’re running that it should match nicely. You can also customize the colors to match your site. There’s even an option to host the images on your server which will help deal with the sluggishness and slow load times that sometimes comes with running external widgets on your site.

Reigning in your digital identity is a problem that I think about a lot (see Take Control of Your Digital Identity). It seems daily that I’m trying out a new social network or blog (Vox) or some new form of user generated content tool (Twitter, tumblelogs, etc.). Keeping track of all of them is a huge headache, and invariably some fall by the wayside.

Having a centralized location to gather and store all the data I publish (photos, videos, blog posts) as well aggregating all my profile and contact information from all of these sites, is something I find is currently missing. Something like a Web 2.0 whitepages or digital business card.

How are you dealing with all your digital identities?
